The sinister characters "Men in Black" (MIB) have, with minor
variations, appeared to many UFO witnesses, usually warning them not
to report their UFO sighting or experience.
Typically, MIB are dressed in black, pristine but old-fashioned
suits and hats with white shirts and they quite often travel in
threes. Often they have been reported to have been wearing wrap-
around sunglasses and when they are not, have been reported to have
oriental features with slanted eyes. Strangely, their mode of
transport is reported to be a Cadillac or other prestige model of
car which looks brand new but has long been out of production! The
vehicle's license plates, when checked, invariably turn out to be
false or unissued numbers.
MIB often resemble humourless G-Men, may be able to produce some
form of I.D. or claim to be from a "Government Department", claiming
to have detailed knowledge of a person's life a "We know all about
you" attitude. In deed there is no doubt that on occasions MIB have
been in possession of information and there was no explanation as to
how they obtained it. Often they know of a UFO experience before the
witness has had the chance to discuss the event with anyone else.
It is a commonly held theory that MIB represent part of the alleged
government cover-up of UFO incidents and official knowledge of them.
